This alone is justification for reintroducing the death penalty.

Some years ago, when planning our wedding, we found there were so many possible florists, stationers, venues, etc.
We filtered them out by ignoring anyone with an apostrophe error on their home page.

'You have 2 choices...'
NO. You have a choice

My local market is full of stalls selling 'Apple's, Banana's and pair's'

Bit awkward if you only want one I suppose

On the Boom25 facebook page a Mod posted that they were 'Going threw all the correct entries'

I posted 'Through' and got some sarcasm back from her about 'Grammar Nazis'

My next post about wanting someone with a basic knowledge of English was deleted
